Product description

Scarf in silk twill with hand-rolled edges (100% silk).

The Hermès scarf is reinvented as the velvety Wash scarf. Washed by our artisans’ expert hands, the scarf is transformed into a relaxed, mattified, and ever so slightly faded piece, gaining an irresistible soft touch. This exclusive process makes each scarf unique and can slightly alter its dimensions.
See the Care section for details on how to care for your Wash scarf.

Made in France

Designed by Kermit Oliver

The story behind

Kachinas are ceremonial dolls given to Hopi children, Pueblo Indians residing in the southwestern part of the United States. The Hopi live peacefully, as their name implies – Hopituh Shi-nu-mu means “The Peaceful People” – , and in harmony with spirits. Ancestors, clouds, gods of fire or rain, mischievous or benevolent spirits are personified in religious ceremonies involving boys from the age of six, during their initiation. A link between the real and invisible worlds, these brightly colored wooden dolls charged with symbolism are given to children to familiarize them with their ancestral beliefs and rituals.
